About National Policy Affairs

National Policy Affairs represents ASU at the national and federal levels. The office coordinates university-wide priorities through the development of the ASU federal agenda and is the primary contact for our Congressional delegation in Washington, D.C. as well as local district offices in Arizona. The office actively participates in national associations to advance issues of importance to ASU and serves as a resource to faculty and staff for federal-related endeavors. In addition, the office monitors the federal legislative process and works closely with relevant federal agencies.

National Policy Affairs is also responsible for submission of quarterly and semi-annual federal lobbying reports to the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate; therefore, it is the primary contact for all ASU faculty and staff required to submit such lobbying information.
